Faith-Based Drug Rehab for Orlando Residents

Faith-Based Drug Rehab for Orlando Residents

Orange County ranks at number four among all the counties of Florida, for the number of people lost to morphine. It is also in the top five for death by cocaine, fentanyl, and heroin.

Orange County law enforcement has taken steps to make sure the drugs are not as easily available as they once were. This has helped manage Orlando’s drug problem and kept it from turning worse. As important as prevention is to saving lives, however, to the hundreds who are already addicted, rehab is what helps. If you are religious or spiritual, faith-based drug rehab  can be the answer to the challenges that you face.

A Yale University study, named ‘Patient attitudes concerning the inclusion of spirituality into addiction treatment’ found that the majority of the subjects turned to spirituality for strength, going through addiction recovery. They felt that they were protected by a higher power in their struggle to attain sobriety.

If you see yourself as religious, addiction may make you feel guilty or get you to feel isolated among your friends at your religious organization. A spiritual Christian rehab center in Orlando may be the right choice for you. Not only do you get to meet like-minded people to share your experiences in your journey to sobriety, but the process may also help you to rediscover your faith in God. Christian rehab centers offer programs that make spiritual guidance an important part of every type of addiction treatment.

How Are Faith Based Rehabs Different?

Christian rehab tends to share many similarities with secular rehab. Legacy Healing Center in South Florida, for instance, goes by the same evidence-based treatment protocols as other facilities. There is a difference in how these treatments are framed, however. The counselors and other staff members who treat you, share your faith and help you understand why the treatments you receive are the right choice to make, in a religious context.

Treatment sessions are interspersed with long hours of prayer, worship, and Bible study, as well. In addition, you have the benefit of scientifically proven addiction treatment approaches such as medical detoxification, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and motivational enhancement therapy, depending on your specific needs.

Human support is an important part of any rehabilitation program, whether in the form of family support, support from friends, a group, or therapists. In Christian rehab, you can count on additional support — you have the faith that you share with your fellow survivors and the therapists. For those with strong faith and spirituality, this can greatly boost confidence in a positive outcome.

It is important to make sure that you find a rehab that is a fit for your particular faith and beliefs. Religion and spirituality can be intensely personal. A rehab that applies a belief system that isn’t closely aligned with yours may not end up strengthening your ability to seek sobriety.

When you look for faith-based rehabs, then, you need to make sure that you ask about the specific faith for which treatment is offered at each center. You may also try secular rehabs that offer faith-based programs. Such programs follow a faith-based path, but your fellow survivors may follow a different kind of treatment path.

It’s important to remember that faith-based rehab only works well for those who are deeply spiritual or religious. Trying faith-based rehab when you are ambivalent about religion can work against you. You may find that you aren’t able to accept what you’re asked to practice, and you may find yourself rebelling. It’s important to choose a treatment approach that you can go along with in good conscience.

Faith and spiritual guidance can contribute to the success of a rehab program. Faith doesn’t work, alone, however. The program that you accept needs to follow scientific, evidence-based therapeutic approaches. Faith comes in as a way to appeal to your mind. It can help you get fully on board and give the effort your best.

What Does The Bible Say About Addiction?

As much as the Bible has to say about intoxication and drunkenness, the word addiction isn’t used in older translations of the Bible. It does appear in some newer versions, however.

Peter 1:13
Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.

Proverbs 20:1
Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.

Ephesians 5:18
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.

The Bible warns against actions and choices that may make the commission of sin more likely. If the idea of living your life according to the word of God appeals to you, seeking forgiveness, and taking steps to leave addiction behind can be meaningful.
